The effect of recycle on gaseous pollutant emissions from fluidized-bed combustion of high-quality coals has extensively been investigated and is well documented. However, the effect of recycle on gaseous emissions from combustion of Turkish lignites with high ash, volatile matter, and sulfur contents has not been investigated to date. Recent trends in the utilization of indigenous lignites in fluidized-bed boilers necessitated investigation of pollutant emissions and adaptation of fluidized-bed combustion technology to these lignites. In this study, experimental results of various runs pertaining to gaseous emissions from the Middle East Technical University 0.3 MWt atmospheric bubbling fluidized-bed combustor test rig burning a typical indigenous lignite, Beypazari, at various recycle ratios, with and without limestone addition, are presented. Measurements show that the effect of recycle on already high combustion efficiency in once-through operation is not pronounced. As for the gaseous emissions, introduction of recycle reduces NOx and SO2 emissions but enhances CO emission.

Effect of freeboard extension on co-combustion of coal and olive cake in a fluidized bed combustor
Akpulat, Onur; Varol, Murat; Atımtay, Aysel (2010-08-01)
In this study, flue gas emissions and combustion efficiencies during combustion and co-combustion of olive cake and coal were investigated in a bubbling fluidized bed. Temperature distributions along the combustion column and flue gas concentrations of O-2, CO, SO2 and NOx were measured during combustion experiments. Two sets of experiments were performed to examine the effect of fuel composition, excess air ratio and freeboard extension on flue gas emissions and combustion efficiency.

Gogebakan, Zuhal; Gogebakan, Yusuf; Selçuk, Nevin (2008-01-01)
The effect of biomass share on gaseous pollutant emissions from fluidized bed co-firing of various biomass fuels with high calorific value coals have extensively been investigated to date. However, effect of co-firing of olive residues with low calorific value lignites having high ash and sulfur contents has not been studied in bubbling fluidized bed combustors. In this study, experimental results of various runs pertaining to gaseous emissions (O2, CO2, CO, SO2, NO, N2O) from METU 0.3 MWt Atmospheric Bubbl...
Influence of coal briquette size on the combustion kinetics
Altun, Naci Emre; Bagci, AS (Elsevier BV, 2004-08-15)
In this study, the effects of one of the most important parameters in coal briquetting process, the briquette size, on the combustion behaviour of coal briquettes were determined from the view of combustion kinetics, i.e. their liability to ignite and combust. Effect of size on the combustion kinetics was treated by two different approaches. The first one consists of combustion kinetics experiments with briquettes of increasing sizes, thus of expanding volumes. In the second phase, briquette dimensions were...
Effect of chromium on the oxidation of steels used in the construction of petroleum refinery heaters
Sultan, Abdelrahman Saleh; Karakaya, İshak; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2013)
Low chromium steels used in the construction of petroleum refinery heaters work in flue gas environments containing water vapor. On the other hand, the higher oxidation rates of chromium containing steels in moist atmospheres have been reported. P-5, P-22, P-11(containing 5, 2.25 and 1.25 %Cr) and C-5 steels, used in petroleum refinery construction, were subjected to isothermal oxidation tests. These steels were tested in two different environments; air and flue gas of natural gas combustion -CO2+2H2O+7.52N...
Effect of particle size and heating rate on the combustion of Silopi asphaltite
Altun, Naci Emre; Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2002-05-01)
In this study, the effects of particle size and heating rate on the combustion properties of Silopi asphaltite were investigated. Nonisothermal thermogravimetry experiments were carried out at three different size fractions and five different heating rates. The TG/DTG experiments were carried out from ambient to 900 degreesC in air. The data obtained were analyzed for the determination of the combustion characteristics of the sample. Also an Arrhenius type kinetic model complemented with the weighed mean ac...
